Landscape is the source of my paintings and textiles. A narrative leads through experiences and thoughts, recorded in photographs, studies and notes in ‘journey books’, arising from walks. Observation combines with memory and imagination. New series of work develop slowly – paintings in oil on canvas or board, mixed media collages and hand-knitting.
 
Recent themes include: ‘fold in the land’  - revisiting the sites of Andy Goldsworthy’s ‘Sheepfolds for Cumbria’  and ‘lands in between’ – explorations of the ‘debatable lands’ from Carlisle to Eskdalemuir.
